Church Building Progress

Praise the Lord!  We had our first service in our new “home” August 16th.  We had a great turnout for a work day to get some projects finished in order to hold the first service and enjoyed a great day of fellowship as well!  Below is just a sampling of what took place….

Carlo worked hard on our floors; he went far and above what we asked of him.  Thank you Carlo!  This is before he applied the sealant; it’s now shiny!   More pictures soon.

Painting day did arrive on May 30th, here are some snapshots of our day.  We had some help from our mother church, Sherwood Community in Council Bluffs.  We enjoyed some music and a BBQ lunch at noontime!  Thank you to all who helped us!!!
